I can’t take it when you put me down.
You make a fool out of me
Whenever I hit the ground.

I’m picking up every piece that I can.
I know I’ve been here before
Like the back of my hand.

You look at me like it’s some kind of game,
Like I’m smaller than you,
Like I don’t have a name.

You can’t tell me I’m not free,
’cause you don’t own me! You don’t own me!
You can’t tell me what I need,
’cause you don’t know me. You don’t know me.

I’ve had enough of being pushed around.
I’m not so weak anymore,
Since I’ve got what I found.

No use twisting your words into hate;
No more using your fists;
No more controlling fate.

I’ve grown a faith much bigger than you,
And those things that you do…
Can’t hurt me anymore!

You can’t tell me I’m not free,
’cause you don’t own me! You don’t own me!
You can’t tell me what I need,
’cause you don’t know me. You don’t know me.

You can’t say you don’t believe
’cause it’s inside me! It’s inside me!
You can’t tell me I’m afraid,
’cause you don’t know me. You don’t know me
At all.

And now and then
When I see your face,
I remember the days
You were inside my head.

All it took was for
Me to let go
To regain control,
And crawl out of your bed!
